I’m staying at a decently nice hotel with plug-in high speed Internet access so I thought watching TV from Atlanta in China would be a piece of cake. After all, in our 5+ hour layover in Tokyo, I was able to watch some TV and control the DirecTV TiVo system fine. While the Internet connection is stable in Beijing, I find that the bitrate varies tremendously so we see only choppy video and audio. This is the same across both systems. Unfortunately, I can’t watch choppy video and audio so both boxes will be unused until our next city (Chongqing City). Hopefully the 5-star hotel for under $100USD will provide a better connection.
